On Tap in Town: Pumpkinhead, Bottled Shorty's To Go

Check out the beers on tap in town at EJ Phair, Tower Grille and Vinnie's. What's your favorite?

This is supposed to be a column about draught beers, but sometimes it's necessary to enjoy a cold one at home — and why shouldn't you have your favorites available at the swoosh of a fridge door? 

Many of the beers available downtown can be found at grocery and liquor stores in bottle form, including all the usuals plus some California favorites like Lagunitas IPA and Lost Coast Tangerine Wheat. But there's a new kid in town. Not until this week has EJ Phair unleashed Shorty's Revenge in bottle form — now available to-go only for $5.50 from the bottle fridge at the back of the restaurant. 

Here's what's on tap this week downtown. Cheers!
